On Friday 20th April 2012, H.E. Mr. Abdelmawgoud A.M. Elhabashy, Ambassador of Egypt to Malta was welcomed to San Anton School. The Ambassador met with Grade 5 students and their teachers, and delivered a talk on Ancient Egyptian Civilisation, focusing on the Pharaoh Tutankhamun who was the students` age when he was crowned King.
The students are currently covering this topic as part of their Humanities Curriculum.
All the students showed keen interest and enthusiasm as could be seen by their active participation during the presentation and their numerous questions and contributions to the talk.
At the end of the talk, the Ambassador also generously presented the children with books about the Holy Family`s flight to Egypt and traditional Egyptian delicacies, and will also be returning to the School in a week’s time to view their classroom exhibitions on this fascinating topic.
